URL ABCs

It’s the latest thing. The way you do this is open up a browser and type in the letter “A” and see what URLs it suggests. I poked through my list and found some of the more interesting links, rather than simply taking the first. Here’s my list:

http://antwrp.gsfc.nasa.gov/apod/ NASA’s Picture of the day site. Great place to get wallpaper.

http://www.briosphere.blogspot.com Brian’s site. I’m the proud papa.

http://www.code(donotgotothislink)crackers.com My attempt at finding a group of people who are geeky enough to want to crack codes for fun. Don’t go to this site! It tried to reset my home page, 25,000 pop-ups began to appear. Etc. Asswipes.

http://www.deathknightsclan.com Here’s something you didn’t know about me. This is the clan I play Unreal Tournament with. They know me as “Rick*Deckard”.

http://www.ebaumsworld.com/kittycannon.html Even though I’m a cat lover, this is a fun game. Can you beat my score of 2270?

http://www.flickr.com/photos/21743213@N00/9684336 These are Sscottyb’s online photos. He’s an artist in case you haven’t figured that out!

http://www.guildwars.com My latest top-secret passion.

http://www.halflife2.net Another game that I love. I’m actually so good at this that I wrote a guide that this website is supposed to publish soon.

http://www.innergeek.us Here is a GREAT Geek test. I am most definitely a geek. Are you?

http://www.jesus.com Here’s something interesting. You type in that URL and it resolves to this: http://mccchurch.org/ Which is the most well-known legitimate church with a special outreach to the world’s gay, lesbian, bisexual and transgender communities. I thought for sure “Jesus.com” would be a joke. It wasn’t.

http://karbonkountymoos.blogspot.com/2005/02/rest-of-story.html For some reason, this came up. This is one of my favorite posts at Karen’s site.

http://www.lorihallsteele.com/ I found this a long time ago. I like to look up my friends on the internet. Lori is one of the greatest people in the world (seriously). We’ve been online friends for years and I’ve always had a secret crush on her.

http://moodleweb.nuclearfallout.net/screens/dm_derelict_twilight__b20014.jpg Now I could post my own URL under “M,” but that would be “Mmmmmasterbation” which also begins with “M”. Instead this is what came up. It’s a screen shot from “HalfLife2” … my favorite computer game. The screen shot should show you why it’s so awesome.

http://nmviewogc.cr.usgs.gov/viewer.htm A really fun map program. Get an aerial shot of your home!

http://ordinarygoddess.blogspot.com The letter O was lonely. This was my only entry. Woohoo! It’s Carol’s site!

http://www.perotheus.com Four of my links begin with P! Pero’s came first.

http://www.qwantz.com/fanart/11.gif Found on another person’s version of this game. It’s so weird it’s … uberweird.

http://www.rottentomatoes.com/vine/showthread.php?t=190929 Here’s a forum where people are all saying that the movie “Equilibrium” did not get the recognition it deserved. I agree! It’s a very cool movie.

http://www.sigalert.com/map.asp?Region=Greater+Los+Angeles A great site for people who live on LA’s freeways.

http://thisismycomputerblog.blogspot.com If you don’t get an extremely uneasy feeling when reading this, you may need help.

http://underbelly.blog-topia.com I found this when doing searches on cryptography. This is an interesting post about what makes a good code. (You’re asking “Is The Butcher’s Code good according to this?” Why yes. Yes it is.)

http://verba.chromogenic.net/archives/2005/01/cameramail.html This was an awesome idea!!

http://www.wikipedia.com I recently went to look up “Tyranny of the majority.” Interesting stuff.

I didn’t have an entry for “X” … but I found this to suffice: http://www.xprizefoundation.com/

http://www.yahoo.com Sorry. This was all I had!

I have nothing for Z either. And I don’t know what this is: http://www.zmag.org/
